We have a poll to gauge the level of community support for this feature. More polls will follow if the feature has some support.
Poll: Should MaidSafe implement PtP (Pay the Provider)?
- Yes, Good Feature
- Yes, Depending on the Implementation
- No , Bad Feature
What is PtP (Pay the Provider)?
It’s a proposed feature to reward anyone who PUTS (uploads) public content with their wallet address (watermark). When data chunks are requested via GETS, the SAFE Network rewards the wallet address associated to those chunks. In simple terms, the more popular your content (video, music, art, games, APPS, etc) is requested by clients, the more rewards you earn.
What is the reward and how is it paid out?
The reward can be Safecoin, or SAFE GB, Divided Safecoin, or some other variation. But we first need to determine if the community supports PtP.
Feel free to post questions, and or comments. Everyone should make an informed decision. That will determine if PtP is fast tracked, delayed, or scrapped.
Here are other threads discussing Pay the Producer concept.
This poll was the result of a group effort
EDIT March 2021
Changed Producer to provider since provider is the incorrect name for PtP. The network has no way to validate who is the producer of any data or if there is indeed any producer at all. All the network can do is reward the coin balance supplied by the uploader (provider)
